Dr Adriana Mihaela Soaita

  • Research Fellow (Urban Studies)

Biography

My research has focused on some of the ways in which housing and home are permeated by, and shape our ideas of, politics and power, trust and governance, space and place, emotions and embodiment. I have also published on urban issues, e.g. social capital and trust in the post-communist space, precarity of place, policy mobility and novel methodologies. I have been a PI/CI in:

  • PI in "Finding housing, making home: Romanian migrants in post-Brexit/Covid-19 Britain", a qualitative study funded by CaCHE. Project team: Munro M (CI), Gherghina S (CI), James G (KE).
  • PI in "Exploring the nexus between trust, corruption and anti-corruption policies in post-communist Romania", a qualitative longitudinal study funded by the Regional Studies Association. 
  • PI in "Tenant activism in the private renting sector", supported by the UK Collaborative Centre of Housing Evidence.
  • CI in "Lockdown pains & mass exodus: rental housing in megacities of the Indian subcontinent", funded by the Scottish Founding Council (PI Sohail Ahmad)
  • CI in “Co-producing solutions with lower-income renters in Scotland: what do lower income tenants in Scotland’s private rented sector want to see from a new Rented Sector Strategy?”, funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (PI Simcock Tom)

I joined the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence and Urban Studies in 2017. Previously I worked at Tilburg University (NL) and at the University of St Andrews (UK). I am also a chartered Romanian architect and planner with a prolific portfolio of residential and commercial projects. My postgraduate studies have been entirely supported by prestigious fellowships, including World Bank.

  • PhD in Housing Studies, King's College London.
  • MSc in Urban Housing Management (Distinction), Erasmus University Rotterdam and Lund University.
  • PG in Real Estate, Project and Property Management (Distinction), IHS Erasmus University Rotterdam.
  • BArch/MArch in Architecture and Planning, Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism, Bucharest.

Research interests

I am interested in housing and the material home as a key site for understanding the dynamic and multidimensional processes through which inequalities are generated via structural determinants, social discourses, everyday practices and cultural mechanisms. This includes:

  • Meanings of home/homeownership and practices of homemaking
  • Housing and social stratification (‘housing class’, status, lifestyle, housing quality)
  • Housing options and Asset-Based Welfare
  • The private rental sector, internationally
  • Comparative housing systems
  • Social capital and trust
  • 'Deep' methodologies: research co-production with visual methodologies (elicitation on the 'River of Life' and photos of home drawn/taken by participants), qualitative longitudinal studies, autoethnography
  • Novel methodologies: the online written interview (qualitative questionnaire) and systematic literature mapping
